Vote for your favourite channel in the Freesat Awards 2009

Freesat Awards 2009

You can enter on the Freesat website and participants will be asked to consider which channel or service has most enhanced their viewing; which has provided them with their best TV or radio moment of the year; which channel they have discovered on Freesat; and which they would recommend to their friends.

What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision is sponsoring the Product of the Year Award, for which we'll be choosing the most innovative Freesat product, based on picture and sound quality, ease of use, design and value for money.

Other Awards will be given for:

* Best evening viewing digital channel

* Best daytime viewing digital channel

* Best digital news channel

* Best digital radio station

* Freesat installer of the year

* Multiple retailer of the year

* Independent retailer of the year

Deadline for entries is April 24th, and the winners will be announced at a special ceremony on May 20th.

In a separate development, Freesat will tomorrow (April 21st) add international news service NHK World TV to its channel line-up.

NHK provides English language news, analysis and culture from a Japanese and Asian perspective to more than 80 countries.
